8-22-2020 - Candidate Portraits

8-22-2020


Over about a two week period I got the opportunity to take the campaign portraits for four candidates each running for various positions in different cities in the bay area. I really enjoyed exploring new sites for reach of these shoots and getting to meet new clients and their families. All of these shoots took place outside with a telephoto lens to keep social distance.

This portrait session was done at the Morcom Rose Garden (700 Jean St, Oakland). This was the first time i've been here. There are so many wonderful locations to choice from in the garden. Morcom Garden is now one of my favorite places for a portrait session.

Eli's family all looked great for the session. I know getting all the little ones ready takes a lot of effort.

For Tessa, we had a  mini family portrait session at her home and then at a local park in El Cerrito. Her family was fun and her daughter had so much energy which added a lot to the family pictures.  Tessa and I also completed a headshot session in the downtown area of El Cerrito. We stopped in front of the movie theatre for a nice backdrop and at El Cerrito plaza.

I meet Dyana at the Berkeley Rose Garden for her head shot session. I actually went to Berkeley for college but I never made it to the Rose Garden. There were some renovations going on in the garden but there was still plenty of beautiful areas to use. The top of the garden provided a great view of the surrounding area. 

Dyana has told me that she was from Berkeley and that she was inspired by her grandmother to run for office.
